The Hellenic (Greek) Society of Nuclear Medicine was established on 1988 in Thessaloniki. The purpose of this society is the development of Nuclear Medicine as a specialty and the development of research, teaching and training in Nuclear Medicine.
Nuclear Medicine is not an easy specialty. It is not strongly related to any other specialty and should be considered as a combination of many others. Nuclear Medicine is independent from radiology, internal medicine etc. We should underline at this point, that more Nuclear Medicine physicians are needed to support clinical nuclear medicine, by cooperating with other clinical specialties, which are interested in diagnosis and treatment.
